Its Past.. Its Present.. Its Future. 

TN the spring of 1910 a legislative act was passed by the General Assembly of Ohio 
"*■ that authorized establishing two normal schools. Governor Harmon appointed a com- 
mission to select the site of the schools, and in December of that year Kent was chosen to be 
the home of one of these new institutions. Early the following year, 1911, the first board of 
trustees was appointed, appropriations were 
made for two buildings, and Dr. J. E. McGilvery 
was elected the first president of Kent State 
Normal School. 

The first years were not easy. Classes held in 
the spring of 1913 met in tents on the front 
campus because the buildings were not yet com- 
pleted. President McGilvery had his office 
downtown above the bank, and it bore no re- 
semblance to the fine office the present executive 
of Kent now occupies. It was bare, and cold 
and Dr. McGilvery says, ". . . so many holes 
in the floor you didn't dare drop a pencil." 

That first fall enrollment reached just 291, and 
while summer classes attracted great numbers, the 
regular session increased slowly and by 1927 was 
just 600. Since that date the number of students 
increased rapidly, reached its peak in 1940 and began 
a sharp decline with the outbreak of the war in 1941. 

William S. Kent had donated the land to the state 
where the school was erected. In 1915, with the 
addition of a four year course, it became Kent State 
Normal College. Then, by legislative authority to 
grant Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science de- 
grees, it became Kent State College in 1929. "With a College of Liberal Arts as well as a College 
of Education, six years later, in 1935, a College of Business Administration was added, and 
under Governor Martin L. Davey the name changed to Kent State University — authorizing the 
granting of Master of Arts degrees. 

Soon after this time Kent gained the reputation 
as the "fastest growing University in the country." 
Social life flourished and things like Campus Night, 
Top Hop, Homecoming, and Sadie Hawkins Day 
were bright spots on everyone's calendar. But this 
era of good time was comparatively short lived for on 
December 8, 1941 students listened grimly to radios as 
President Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war. 

Within less than two years Kent became the 336th 
College Training Detachment of the Army Air 
Corps. Smaller classes and off-campus living, no 
inter-collegiate athletics, or fraternities were evi- 
dences of the change. 

Now we are looking forward to tomorrow — a 
large program of building expansion, a campus where once more that carefree life can flour- 

ish, and where the University can grow to something bigger than any of our dreams.

Dean Raymond M. Manchester 

GREATER than his titles imply are the services of Dean Raymond Manchester, for they 
go far beyond merely the duties of a head of a math department, and dean of men. 

His services have been that of spreading a good measure of warmth into the lives of the 
people with whom he works. Through his efforts the Penny Drive sends Staters to as many 
"Kent-sick" boys as is possible; through his efforts for nine years now the beaten, the corrupt, 
and the excessively gay have received enlightenment, admonishment, and moral restitution em- 
bodied in the Saturday Letter. Perhaps the Dean had better speak for himself — ^this speech, 
given at the first Senior Assembly in the fall credits the giver as a master of comprehension of 
the student's soul, as well as a master of wit: 

"President Clark, Honorable Master of Ceremonies, Distinguished Collaborators, Repre- 
sentatives from the Faculty, Delegates from the Intellectual Fringe, Key Collectors, Queens, 
Certificate Chasers, Book-losers, Over-sleepers, and Paid-up members of the super-colossal sec- 
tion of the amalgamated Magna Cum Laude Association for the uplifting of academic souls: 

"Let me correct President Clark on one point. He suggests the desirability of climbing 
high (mentally, morally, and spiritually) to the end that you may improve your view and 
lengthen your vision. I wish to call attention to the fact that those who have attended 
Kent State for four years have seen everything. 

"It is an honor to be asked to participate in this program and address an aggregation, 
the members of which have made such enviable records in keeping their point averages ex- 
tremely low over such a long period of time. 

"It is a challenge to stand before those who with and without the aid of books, teachers, 
libraries, laboratories, and mechanical devices have acquired a limited number of the first letters 
of the alphabet. Even though such possessions were purchased with judicious use of the red 


This is his philosophy .... his humor .... that is a 
part of Kent to her sons and daughters .... 
wherever they may be ... . 

apple, subtle flattery, and nimble repartee, one must give credit where credit is due and, re- 
gardless of the procedure of collecting, you did try. 

"It is a pleasure to look into your bright and shining faces. I must admit, however, that 
in the words of a famous humorist, 'God knows some of them need looking into.' 

"To those of you who have not been attending classes for a month or two, your teachers 
send greetings. They (your teachers) think of you daily and speak your names. In fond 
memory, they write down neat little "X's" and you know what "X's" mean on the bottom 
of your favorite letter. Not only do your teachers remember you with "X's" but they draw 
perfect "O's" in a row to probably represent a string of pearls and a "forget-me-not" sentiment. 
At the end of each quarter, your teachers turn in for each and every one a note carrying the letter 
"F." This, of course, stands for friendship. 

"To those majoring in extra-curricular activities and to all unattached flibbertigibbets, 
the University sends best wishes and expresses a hope that you will visit us when convenient. 
The University suggests that you should check up on vacation dates Q 

so that you may arrive and leave home at appropriate moments. ^ •-«.='-- 

"To those desiring diplomas, I would suggest that you call at the Of- 
fice of the Registrar and indicate the kind, color, and size. You should 
also list the honors you feel would be pleasing to you. A small addi- 
tional charge will be made for the masters diploma to cover expenses 
incident to the wrapping of the hood about your neck on Commence- 
ment Day. 

"To those desiring the pleasure of marching in the academic procession, I wish to suggest 
that you indicate a choice of position. In case you desire a place with the deans and speakers, 
a red necktie should be worn and a sharp tilt given to the cap. 

"To one and all I wish to extend congratulations upon originality of dress and cleverness 
exhibited in cap selection. The outfits are especially suitable for the men because we all know 
that the good appearance of male graduates is directly proportional to the amount of the 
domes covered up. 

"If any one of you is married, contemplates marriage, or is flippantly flirting with the 
idea, let me urge caution. My Aunt Mary always said she was married one hundred times. 
As she put it, the first one was O.K., but the next two were naughts. 

"I have enjoyed these few moments with you and wish to thank you for your attention. 
My only request is that if, at any time within the next few weeks, you should accidentally 
find out what time it is, please let me know." 

To Dean Manchester and his twenty-four years of service we dedicate the Chestnut Burr. 

The Calm 
Immeasurable, Majestic 
Passing of Time 


Time goes you say . . . 

Ah, no! 
Time stops ... we go . . . 


HIS IS KENT STATE UNIVERSITY in nineteen hundred and forty-four. 
This, a time when all of us found changes everywhere . . . saw khaki uniforms and many un- 
familiar faces where we had remembered fraternity men in tweeds and horrible neckties . . . 
watched enrollment drop to just seven hundred . . . missed some of our favorite professors 
who were no longer facing their classes. Varsity athletics became something again remem- 
bered and upper classmen in nostalgic retrospect related to eager freshmen about past tri- 
umphs, like last season's victory over Akron U. after thirteen years. 

Instead of the carefree existence that had been such a part of us in other years, many were 
working in war industries, studying the map making course the government offered, or teach- 
ing recreational activities to the children of war workers. All of this, and even more vividly 
the casualty lists that included our former classmates, and at last we realized that we were at 
war. It had taken more than time to make us aware of it. 

Time became more important to us than ever before. Time that moved too slowly when 
we waited for letters or that someone's furlough. Time that speeded by too quickly when the 
furlough came, when a term paper was due, or when we realized that the quarter was nearly 
over. And because it became so much more important than ever before, the nineteen forty- 
four Chestnut Burr has based its theme on time. The mornings, afternoons, and evenings that 
make up each day, and week, of this year. These pages are your story of the seven hundred 
who came back and carried on, to keep alive that indescribable some- 
thing that has always been Kent. 

It will take more than war to quell that spirit. This year has 
shown that we can keep it in spite of adversity. We know that in the 
years of peace that will come someday, perhaps others will be thankful 
to those who helped to keep alive that feeling. We must keep on doing 
our part to keep it alive, yet of the outcome, time alone can tell. 


HETHER dressed in autumnal browns, 

winter white, or spring green, Kent State 
University's campus presents a lovely land- 
scape of rolling slopes, old oaks, maples, and 
elms, and winding paths. 

And all year around the campus is dotted 
with students making the most of their free 
time. In the warm late spring and summer 
they study in the welcome shade of the large 
trees. In the winter they tobbogan and ski 
and sled on the numerous hills. 

Set high on the hilltop is the semi-circle 
of original buildings. Leading directly to 
the Administration building is the main walk 
starting at the University corner and winding 
under traditional Prentice gate and past the 
seal of the former and still respected Kent 
State College. 

On the crest of the hill also are the two 
oldest class room buildings — ^Merrill and Kent 
halls, Down the slope stand Lowery and 
Moulton halls, formerly dormitories for wo- 

men and soon to be returned for use by wo- 
men students after serving over a year as 
barracks for the Army aircrew. 

McGilvrey hall, the million dollar science 
building, completes the semi-circle. Hidden 
from view of the main thoroughfare is the 
newest women's dormitory, Engleman hall, 
named after the University's late president- 
emeritus, James O. Engleman. Completing 
the physical equipment of the University is 
the heating plant which houses the industrial 
arts department, and, of course, Rockwell 
Library, situated in the hollow in the front 
of the campus. 


from his role as professor of Psychology to 
take over the leadership of the University in 
the spring of nineteen forty-three. As act- 
ing president he has managed to keep the 
affairs of the University well organized 
through a trying situation. The task of or- 
ganizing and arranging the details of a past 
administration into comprehensibility for a 
new administration has not been easy. 

The assumption of new duties has not closed 
the door of his office to the comparative 
trivialities, the personal problems of the stu- 
dents. Instead they have found an audience 
behind the huge desk, a small man with a 
large capacity for listening. 

In the management of the front office Dr. 
Clark's invaluable aid has been the versatile 
Miss Alice Carter, the president's secretary. 


who has been responsible for general oflSce 

On July first, 1944, Mr. George A. Bow- 
man, will be inaugurated as president of Kent 
State University, and Dr. Clark will return 
to his life work, the teaching of psychology. 


IRST to greet anxious freshmen in the 
fall at registration is Emmit C. Stopher, Uni- 
versity Registrar. He patiently listens to the 
endless woes of conflicting schedules that 
comes from upperclassmen as well as new 
students. Across the atrium is O. B. Law's 
office. This year again, he acted as advisor 
to the student allocations committee, and 
through his able guidance they allocated all 
student activity fees. 

Dr. De Weese, director of the University 
health service, and his assistants. Dr. Leggett, 
Dr. English, and nurses, Mittie Smith and 
Mary Jane Slates, offered help for everything 
from a sore throat to a case of measles. 

Supervising maintenance of University 
property was Larry Woodell. He and his 
staff were constantly behind the scenes of 
every dance and basketball tournament. Last 
spring Dr. Weldon Williams, former English 
professor, was appointed as University Libra- 
rian. Since his appointment many changes in 
organization have come about in Rockwell 

Director of Student Placement is the posi- 
tion ably filled by Dr. Lester Munzenmayer. 

Through his efforts a greater percentage of 
students than ever before have been placed in 
schools in Ohio and other states. He has ar- 
ranged interviews with representatives from 
many national companies that resulted in 
placement of Kent men and women to posi- 
tions of responsibility. 


I LADING the School of Art is Miss 
Nina Humphrey who injects into her stu- 
dents all the enthusiasm she has for her de- 
partment . . . Mr. Fred Marbut, other than 
his work as acting head of the School of 
Journalism, has guided student publications 
and supervised and edited University bulletins 
and publicity. 

Professor Denker held the baton that led 
the School of Music through another success- 
ful year while in the directors chair of the 
University Theatre was E. Turner Stump, 
chairman of the School of Speech.

lUCH of the credit for the reputation 
of fine teachers turned out by Kent State 
University goes to Dean John Blair, of the 
College of Education. His classes are inspira- 
tional because of the originality and wit he 
uses in conducting them. 

Dean Arden Allyn, College of Business 
Administration leader, has helped to develop 
the scope of business training offered in the 
University curriculum. 

Offering a broad cultural background the 
College of Liberal Arts is headed by Dean 
Earl Crecraft. Much of its success is due to 
his consideration and understanding for mem- 
bers of the college. 

Their poHtical campaign was gigantic. 
Under the leadership of sophomore council 
representatives, Gloria Cianciola and Don 
Wargowsky, they organized early in the Fall 
and later elected Jim Elliott, president, Sue 
Alstot, vice president, and Barbara Berkey 
and Barbara McDowell secretary and treasurer. 

They delved into dramatics with "The 
Family Upstairs," and contributed the talents 


jEARLY three hundred freshmen en- 
rolled in the fall quarter and, small but 
mighty, the Class of Forty-eight started its 
college career with all the enthusiasm that 
Freshman classes have had in years past. They 
went through registration with comparative 
ease as they listened dubiously to the stories 
upper classmen told of previous years when 
it took more than patience to wade through 
the endless streams of students waiting in lines. 
They found college life a little different than 
they had imagined, but they soon adjiisted 
and became a part of it. An important part 
too, because they could be the class that would 
first see Kent in the peace time to come. 

of thespians, Dave Ryan, Joan Shremp, and 
Betty Gervin and Edwin Suvanto, to Univer- 
sity Theatre productions. 

The Stater groomed some of them into 
budding journalists, and the names of John 
Thomas, Carol Linder, Helen Piatt, Kay Tolt, 
and Ted Phillips made frequent by-lines. 

One of their number was shy George 
Yamashiro, Japanese rehabilitation student, 
enrolled in the College of Business Adminis- 

In the spring, with chairman Sue Alstot, 
they climaxed their activities by joining the 
Sophomore and Junior classes in presenting 
the Popularity Ball, where the Most Popular 
Man and Most Popular "Woman were pre- 



N an early fall election Don Wargowsky 
was elected president of the class, Julie Juch, 
vice-president, and Gladys Ulch and Marjorie 
Gamble, secretary and treasurer. 

FuUfilling the promise they had shown as 
freshmen the year before members of the class 
were found active in every part of the Uni- 
versity. Petite, Betty Lee Winfield, transfer 
from Muskingum, took honors as bandleader 
Tommy Dorsey's choice for Chestnut Burr 
Queen. Gloria Cianciola headed the Alloca- 
tions committee and helped class members 
Elaine Chamberlain, Don Wargowsky, and 
Norma Hackundy carry the torch of student 
government, as representatives to student 
council. They found need for their talents in 
publications and Noreen Lutz and Julie Juch 
over worked their speed graphics to turn out 
Burr photos. Norma Nisley, Dottie Jones 
and Lillian Sokoll were busy each Monday and 
Thursday with the Stater. Prexy Wargowsky 
was elected Most Popular Man. 

Department Heads 

R. HERMAN D. BYRNE, professor 
and politician, always on hand to help mem- 
bers of the election committee when prefer- 
ential ballots were to be counted, is head of the 
Political Science department. . . . The history 
oflSce is under the leadership of Dr. Sellow 
Roberts, who resembles every freshmans idea 
of what a college professor should look like . . . 
As the calm and efficient business woman. 

Professor Cleo Crow heads the department of 
Secretarial Science ... In addition to his posi- 
tion as English department head, Professor 
C. E. Satterfield has worked for a number of 
years as a member of the Publications Policy 
committee . . . Well known far outside Uni- 
versity circles as a leader in his field is Dr. 
Christian F. Rumold, Physical Science . . . Dr. 
H. W. Hudson, professor and capable leader 
of the Economics department . . . The Soci- 
ology department head. Dr. James T. Laing 
keeps his classes amused with his stories about 
"my nine year old" . . . No other instructor 
in the University shows more enthusiasm for 
her profession than does Professor G. Hazel 
Swan, Kindergarten Primary . . . Dr. Donald 
Anthony is the industrious head of the Busi- 
ness Administration department . . . Supervis- 
ing Secondary Education is Dr. A. W. Stewart, 
who is known in educational circles for his 
work with testing and evaluation . . . Directing 
work of the departments of Geology and Geog- 
raphy is Dr. David Olsen . . . Psychology stu- 
dents receive guidance from Dr. D. W. Pearce 
. . . Women who are majoring in the field of 

Home Economics are lead by Professor Bertha 
L. Nixon . . . Dr. C. C. Kochenderfer is the 
capable leader of the department of Commerce 
. . . Formerly a missionary to South America, 
Dr. Willis J. Burner now heads the department 


of Foreign Languages. The important job of 
supervising the work of student teachers is 
the responsibility of Dr. A. L. Heer . . . Dr. 
Maurice Baum's classes in the Philosophy de- 
partment, are the most animated courses in 
the University. 


I HIS year more than ever before the 
juniors took over positions of responsibility 
within the school. 

A great deal of their efforts turned to journ- 
alism. Ruth Recht, occupied the chief's chair 
in the Stater oflSce second quarter, and Johnny 
WilKamson was appointed business manager. 

IWVl %i^s, 

Jane Selzer, and Elizabeth Erfley were edition 
editors of the paper. "Here's the Deal" was 
the twice-weekly column of what went on 
about campus, as penned by Don Kemp and 
T. K. Harris. Herbert Koehn was chosen 

business manager of the Burr, and Jean Lenner, 
Mary Thomas, and John "Williamson worked 
on the editorial staff. 

The years social events were concluded when 
the class joined Freshmen and Sophomores in 
presenting the Popularity Ball. Their class 
prexy, Alice Cox, was introduced as Most 
Popular Woman. Other class officers were 
vice president John "Williamson, and secretary 
and treasurer, Ethel Day and Betsy Case. 

Peggy Curry did an excellent job as the first 
president of the Student Government Associa- 
tion. In the theater, the names of Haines and 
Greenbaum meant good entertainment and 
Arline Riggle made a fine reputation with her 
beautiful stage sets. 


OR the class of 1944 the occasion for 
donning caps and gowns and assuming tem- 
porary academic elegance was the first assembly 
of the year given in honor of the seniors. The 
thoughts that ran through their heads as they 
marched in the processional were ably expressed 
by president Meg Cook in her address to the 
class . . . 

In the fall of 1940 we started our college 
careers. Fifteen hundred anxious freshmen, 
that made up the largest class ever to enter the 
University, the class of forty-four. "We 
quickly delved into every activity on campus, 
wanted to be seasoned veterans of the college 
world in less than a week. Politics raged and 
the names of Gallagher, Kieselbach, Harris, 
Davis, and Thorne were ones we all remember 
now, foixr years later when our number has 


dwindled to just under two hxindred. Those 
names and others will not join us in that aca- 
demic procession across the campus in June 
but we shall be thinking of them, whether 
they be in England, or India, or the Aleutians. 
We will remember all the good times we had 
when we were still the largest class and some- 
day at that long awaited homecoming we will 
see them all again. 


JHIS year the Chestnut Burr has selected 
twelve people, each for a particular reason, 
a very definite part of the Kent scene. We 

Peggy Curry, for her never ending enthusi- 
asm for everything she undertakes, and because 
she is a house guest at the White House or a 
hostess to a group of refugee students with 
equal ease . . . and best of all for the confidence 
she inspires in the future of Kent State. 

Arline Riggle, in appreciation of the hours 
spent back stage building the scenery that 
others took the bows before. Whether in 
front of the footlights or back stage was be- 
cause she loved the theater, not personal glory. 

Johnny Proctor, first for his inspirational 
speech given Brotherhood Week, and again for 
the many little things he did for us at Russ 
(are you twenty-one?) O'Conke's Deck. 

Fran Murphey, with her ancient model of a 
Speed Graphic always looking the part of a 
journalist and worrying because some fresh- 
man wondered if she went to school here. 

Don Kemp, because as must all would be 

Winchell's, he had to take a lot of criticism, 
and because he took it so well. 

Don Wargowsky — his always happy smile 
that makes others feel that way too. His lead- 
ership that has given him so many positions of 

Marilou Sowash for much of the credit for 
the work the assembly committee has done this 
year, and the initiative she has shown as student 

Martha Jean Lauderbaugh because she is 
another who works hard and lets another take 
the spothght for it. She thinks of others than 
herself, always. 

Phil Rubin and cameras were on the spot 
to cover every dance and social event with 
film and flashgun, and his supreme confidence 
in his ability to surpass even the experts. 

The Team of Haines and Greenbaum always 
on hand to do an act to give sparkle to any 
type program . . . from slapstick to Shake- 

Al Annadonna for his friendly smile and 
his work on Men's Union, for trying to keep 
the men together in a difficult time.

< Ci 










^HE afternoon usually began officially 

with one of Okies sandwiches or a visit 

to Mrs. Hall's. If lunch hour was brief 

and hurried, we envied those who could sit 

in the Brady for an hour of catching up on 

campus gossip. But many of us were off to 

another class, a job, or a meeting. Everyone 

seemed to have this or that committee function to attend and the time from noon till evening 

passed quickly. 

Monday at four Student Council held its weekly session up in Merrill Hall. Peggy Curry, 
as the first president to work a year under the new constitution, was responsible for a great deal 
of its success. Meg Cook was vice president and election chairman, Gloria Cianciolla watched 
the budget as treasurer and chairman of allocations committee, and Jane McDowell was secretary. 
In the spring election students voted on several recommended revisions in the constitution, 
many of which were discussed at the meetings of the Student Government Association held each 
quarter. Attendance at these meetings showed student interest was high and after a years trial 
the constitution proved to be a working document. 


)ELAIDE SNYDER held the editor's 
chair the first half of the year with Ruth 
Smith in the business manager's oflSce. Cut 
to two editions a week they did put out a fine 
paper. Snyder's editorials were some of the 
finest ever written for the Stater. In February 
Ruth Recht assumed the title of chief and 
Johnny Williamson took the feminine touch 
from the business managers office. Recht 
caused a sensation by her purple and perfumed 
Easter edition. 


IG MAN, Herb Koehn, paved the way 
for privacy among future business managers 
by taking over a new office complete with 
office hours and his name on the door. The 
photographic stajQF patiently put up with the 
attempts of editor Jane McDowell to contrib- 
ute photographically to the book. Johnny 
Williamson and Virginia Good were associate 
editors until a spring quarter when Johnny 
joined the Stater, and Mrs. Good her husband 
in Georgia. 

O W A 

I HE Office of "War Activities, founded 
because of a wartime need for a campus service 
group, sponsored one of the most successful 
campus campaigns for funds when it raised 
$1200 in the United War Chest drive. 

Dean of Men Raymond E. Manchester was 
presented with a $300 check for the Penny 

fund from this money. The amount enabled 
the dean to send Kent Staters to more uni- 
versity men in this country. 

A check for $200 was turned over to the 
World Student Service fund and another 
donation of $100 went to the infantile paralysis 
fund. At a special assembly the check for 
the paralysis donation was given to Don War- 
gowsky by Jean Barger. 

The Red Cross war fund's share in the chest 
drive was $200. A small fund of $234 remain- 
ing in the chest has been held over until the 
fall of 1944. 

Other activities of the O.W.A. was a cadet 
welcome dance, an adopt-a-soldier campaign 
and Christmas favors for servicemen. 

Peggy Curry was chairman of the organiza- 
tion and Virginia Black, secretary. Chairmen 
for the chest drive were Betty Osmundson and 
Miss Barger. 


ITH the new student constitution on 
trial in 1943-44, reorganiaztion of the uni- 
versity publications committee was authorized 
in the fall. 

Professor Frederick B. Marbut, acting chair- 
man of the school of journalism, named four 
students to the committee, including Jane 
McDowell, editor of the Chestnut Burr; Ade- 
laide Snyder, former Stater editor; Phyllis 
Pontius and Don Wargowsky. Faculty mem- 
bers were Dr. Lester H. Munzenmayer and 
C. E. Satterfield. 

The constitution gave students a larger rep- 
resentation on the committee. In previous 
years, it had had a smaller percentage of stu- 
dent members than faculty. 

The business manager and editor of the Kent 
Stater for the last half of the year were chosen 
in February. Announcements of publication 



heads for the Stater and the Chestnut Burr 
were made late in May by the committee. 

vice president, Marge Gamble second, and 
Charlotte Lose secretary. 



ACED with the problem of no time 
available on the air, the workshop gang carried 
out a program of practice activity. Virginia 
Good was director of the workshop, chief 
engineer, and instructor to those who worked 
to learn radio technique. Air crew men made 
records for the folks back home through work- 
shop facilities. 


HIS year the largest men's organization 
established a lounge in Merrill Hall where men 
could gather between classes for relaxation. 
John Williamson was president and Dean 
Manchester advisor. A banquet was held in 
the winter quarter and Al Annadonna acted as 
co-chairman of Pork Barrel. 


ELCOMING freshman in the fall was 
their first event and Martha Forsberg and 
Flora Millere v/ere co-chairman of the Big 
and Little Sister Tea. In the capable hands 
of prexy Doris Yarger, the group opened the 
women's lounge, appointed freshman coun- 
selors, formed Student Court, honored seniors 
at a banquet and sponsored Pork Barrel with 
Men's Union. Mary Ellen Hoffman was first 

iNE of the innovations of the year's 
program of the Young Women's Christian 
association was the formation of special inter- 
est groups, including world affairs, book re- 
views and recreation. 

The members organized the student-pro- 
fessor forum and illustrated discussions by 
faculty members like Dr. Grace B. Sherrer, 
Miss Mary Katherine Boswell and Dr. Edna 
Lotz Oswalt. 

Representatives were sent to the World 
Acquaintance tour, the area conference of 
Y. W. groups and the world Mission of the 
Church. Club members contributed their 
services to the United War Chest drive. 

The social side was initiated by the freshman 
weiner roast and followed by the Y. M.-Y. W. 
hayride, a Christmas party at which boxes 
were prepared to be sent to the Kentucky 
mountains, and a chocolate hour at the home 
of Mrs. J. L. Blair. 

Oflficers included Lois Deneke, president; 
Doris Yarger, vice president; Myrtle Geckler, 
secretary; Doris McCartney, treasurer; and 
advisers, Miss Jane EJein, Mrs. Blair and Miss 


EGINNING the year with a tiny nu- 
cleus of old members and a revised cabinet, the 
Young Men's Christian Association grew until 
it numbered 40 students, almost half of the 
total male enrollment and representing the 


greatest ratio membership the Y. M. C. A. has 
ever achieved. 

Projects of the group included sending mem- 
bers as adult supervisors to the South School 
recreation center, sponsored by the city recrea- 
tion commission to combat juvenile delin- 
quency; sponsorship of the game-time period 
set aside each week for students to enjoy games 
and activities, and the fellowship project de- 
signed to affect every man student in school. 

The organization also held the Y. M. hay- 
ride, amateur night, a Christmas party. Chalk- 
talk, Campfire get-together, social and business 

Intramural activities drew heavily upon Y. 
M. C. A. members. The outstanding func- 
tion of the year was the Brotherhood Week 
convocation. Contributions were made to the 
university War Chest fund and the Penny 

Functions of the Y. M. C. A. were organized 
in a student-faculty cabinet with Dean of Men 
Raymond E. Manchester and Dr. Ronald E. 
Spacht as advisers; Albert Annadonna, pro- 
gram director, and Albert Simon, secretary- 
treasurer, as student leaders. 


AN-HELLENIC council officially 
opened the rush season by arranging the Round 
Robin tea Sunday, Oct. 10, 1943, for all uni- 
versity women interested in pledging. 

Pan-Hell is composed of two representatives 
from each sorority. The group discussed rush 
rules, plans for formal rush parties, contribu- 
tions to local drives, tournaments, banquets 
and problems common to all the organizations. 

The organization started the year by pub- 
lishing the Pan-Hell Blue Book as a guide to 
freshmen interested in sororities. This spring 
and last spring, Pan-Hell sponsored the annual 

bridge tournament. Marge Keith was 1943 
chairman and Miss Sowash 1944 chairman. 

The Scholarship cup presented at the an- 
nual banquet when new officers are installed 
is sponsored by Pen-Hell. 

Alice Cox, Beta Gamma, was president; Miss 
Sowash, Alpha Omega, vice president; Mary 
Jane Berline, Theta Sigma Upsilon; recording 
secretary' Miss Stalzer, Pi Kappa Sigma, corre- 
sponding secretary; Jean Lenner, Gamma Sig- 
ma Phi, treasurer; and Jean Hunger ford, Tri- 
Sigma, Women's League representative. 

The advisers for the year were Dr. Gertrude 
Lawrence, permanent adviser, and Miss Evan- 
geline JaflFurs. 


I EN new members were added to the 
membership roster of Phi Alpha Theta, history 
honorary fraternity. 

A spring banquet was held and bi-monthly 
meetings for business and social purposes. His- 
torical reports were made at the various meet- 
ings. A fraternity scrapbook was started. 

Jane Heaphey was president; Jeanne Clare 
Jacobs, vice president; Helen Scott Lukas, sec- 
retary, and Regina Marto, treasurer. 


NE of the most worthwhile projects of 
Zeta Iota, professional business fraternity for 


women in the colleges of education and busi- 
ness administration, was the publication of the 
Zeta Iota letter each quarter. 

Aim of the letter was to help local and 
alumni members keep in touch with each other, 
Mary Ann Lapadus, Myrtle Geckler, Betty 
Jeanne Rhoads, and Laura McConnell were in 
charge of the letter this year. 

The organization is also keeping a scrap- 
book of all the letters which alumni members 
have written to the fraternity. 

Fourteen women composed Zeta Iota and 
had 3.0 cumulatives in their majors and minors. 
Miss Cleo Crow, head of the department of 
secretarial science, served as adviser. 

Officers included Miss Geckler, president;

O our campus since April, 1943 there have come hundreds of ambitious boys to study that 
they might better serve their country at war. Boys from all over this land, here to gain the 
knowledge that pieced together and used effectively will bring us victory. 

They each have a job to do, and realizing that, they worked hard, went on for more training, 
and made way for another group to follow them. 

Whether in the class room, counting cadence through the halls, or dancing with a co-ed on 
Saturday night they were as much a part of Kent as any student out of uniform. 

We salute the Army Air Corps and more specifically the 33 6th College Training Detach-

After the Stars Come Out 

TURN our thought for a while from books, and exams, and classroom cares, to an eve- 
ning at the Deck, a dance, or the local movie. Some nights were big and important, like Top 
Hop, or Campus Night, or the Theater Formal, and required the usual mad scramble for the 
right formal that would "do something" for a sorority sister' and the fellows mad dash to pick 
up his dates corsage at Terese's ten minutes before the dance. Those were nights to remember, 
nights that will bring back happy memories for years to come. Seeing the whole gang at Karp- 
ers after twelve, and munching shoestrings before the long walk home was all part of dance 

There were other nights too, when we were up until four or five slaving over the paper that we 
only knew about for twelve weeks in advance, or nights when we were lonesome and wished 
that we could be someplace else for just a little while, or better that the someone could be here. 
Many nights and many memories of after the stars came out .... 


Chestnut Burr Queen 


I HIS was Betty Lee Winfield's first year 
at Kent, but it was an eventful one . . . High- 
lighting her career as a sophomore in the Col- 
lege of Liberal Arts was her selection as 1944 
Chestnut Burr Queen by bandleader Tommy 
Dorsey . . . This resulted in her being guest 

of honor at the Burr dance in the spring. 
Active in speech work, Betty Lee has appeared 
in the University Theatre productions, "Schu- 
bert Alley" and "Ladies in Retirement." A 
transfer from Muskingum College, she is now 
a member of Student Council and Sigma Sig- 
ma Sigma sorority. This all happened during 
her first year here ... so anything can happen 
from here on in. 


NE of the greatest tributes KSU can 
pay to any one of its feminine students is to 
elect her "Miss Kent State" . . . and this was 
the tribute paid to Betty "Bunny" Bunnell . . . 
Her formal presentation was at the Top Hop, 
annual name -band dance. A senior in the col- 
lege of education, she was president of the 
HPE club, and a member of Student Council, 
"K" Book committee, and the elections com- 
mittee. Her Greek affiliation is Sigma Sigma 
Sigma sorority. Bunny completed her aca- 
demic hours in March and spent the last quar- 
ter of the year teaching. 

jury of artists and Captain William 
Ackerman choose lovely Lila Sprague to reign 
at the Campus Night festivities. In tradi- 
tional manner the identity of the queen re- 
mained secret until the actual time of presen- 
tation when her name was called. With the 
poise and charm that had made her the judges 
choice. Miss Sprague walked through the 
court of beauties to be crowned with a cornet 
of white flowers. 

The dark eyed brunette was wearing a 
crown for the second time in two years, hav- 
ing been chosen Penny Drive Queen by a 
popular election the year previous. 

A major in Elementary Education and a 
member of Beta Gamma sorority, her college 

career ended in the spring when she left school 
to later take a teaching position near her home 
in Hubbard. 

Most Popular Woman 

NOTHER way of spelling AUce Cox 
is p-e-r-s-o-n-a-l-i-t-y . . . and this pleasing 
personality is evident in everything she does 
. . . from sitting in the Brady to singing in 
the a cappella choir. A junior in the college 
of education, the Most Popular Woman of 


1944, this year was president of Beta Gamma 
sorority and president of the junior class . . . 
She is also a member of Student Council, 

Student Court, Pan-Hellenic council, Chi 
Mu, and Kappa Delta Pi, And with all these 
activities, she even finds plenty of time for 
her fiance, Bob Myers. 

Most Popular Man 

AYBE it was the twinkle in his eye . . . 
and maybe it was his reputation for Univer- 
sity service that did the trick . . . but at any 
rate, KSU students elected him their Most 
Popular Man of 1944. Only a sophomore in 
the College of Liberal Arts, Don served this 
year as president of the sophomore class, vice 
president of Student Council, vice president 
of Men's Union, and a debater on the foren- 
sic squad. Besides this, Don always has a 
smile for everyone, even before the campaign, 
applies himself diligently to his extra-cur- 
ricular activities, and is a consistently good 
student academically. It might have been 
the twinkle, but there was a lot more to go 
with it. 


frolic of the year. Campus Night, 
the parade with its integral rivalry of cos- 

tumes and floats. The Queen radiant behind 
her flowers as the maypole was wound and 
the Metcalf band boomed out the joy of the 
day. Then the dance, and the presentation 
of May Queen Lila Sprague and her attend- 
ants, and at intermission the sorority and 
fraternity sing on the steps of Merrill Hall. 
The crowd, which had been gathering all day, 
stood in the midst applauding not only for 

the songs but for something more, the spirit 
of Kent State going on in the face of war. 
A very real reminder of war was there, a 
group of men counting cadence in our parade, 
five hundred khaki clad men saluting the 
queen. A different kind of a Campus Night? 
Yes, but wasn't it fun? 


HRU the stage door of many a Theatre 
production to the music of Harold Nelson 
went over 200 students and their guests at- 
tending the Winter Formal of the University 
Theatre January 15. 

Staged by Mary Haines and Stella Green- 
baum, co-chairmen, the affair was second 


only in size to the Top Hop for 1943-44 
dances. Alpha Psi Omega tapped pledges 
and the membership trophy cup was pre- 
sented to Beta Gamma sorority for the second 
consecutive year. 


University Theatre 

OCTAL event of the year was Top Hop 
night when everyone turned out to dance to 
the music of Paul Hand's orchestra. Soft 
lights, and even Wills gym assumed a new 
glamour for the evening. During intermis- 
sion Peggy Curry, President of the Student 
Government Association, presented Miss Betty 
Bunell, as Miss Kent State, while the members 
of Sigma Sigma Sigma formed a court for 
the queen. Credit for the well planned event 
went to Mary Thomas, chairman of the social 
committee, who in spite of the difficulties of 

\WVt Itfc^^., 

limited funds gave a dance that equaled any 
other year and one which all of us will long 

lEW faces figured prominently in Uni- 
versity Theatre productions this year with 
Freshman Arlene Riggle taking the spotlight 
in Schubert Alley as the decorative and tal-

tinued their list of stage successes as two pixi- 
lated sisters in Ladies in Retirement while 
Frances Fairchild gained notice as the deliber- 
ate murderess, Viola Cian swayed across the 
stage as the red-haired haridan and a second 

attractive love interest was introduced, Betty 
Lee Winfield. Roy Dunn, pork barrel emm- 
cee and ministerial student went dramatic as 
a wolfish renegate. 

The theatre season was brought to a hilari- 
ous close with Noel Coward's Hay Fever,

the Misses Riggle, Fairchild and Haines, while

These early morning hours . . . doing their bit for morale . . . reminiscing. 

From the hilltop Alma Mater gazing on her portals wide 
Sees the coming generations, as they throng to seek her side. 
Seek her side to win her blessing, throng her gates to hear her name. 
Leave her gates to sing her praise; go afar to spread her fame.
